ABSA SMS Deposit Scam

I received a SMS notification for the transfer of funds from an ABSA Bank to my bank account for the sale of goods to a  Mr. S. Motsepe. The goods sold to this person were advertised on Gumtree. The notification appeared to be authentic to me and was very convincing. Unfortunately it turned out to be a fraudulent SMS. The fraudster uses (or did use) a cell phone +27785574600 and an e-mail address  steven motsepe [steven2motsepe@hotmail.com]. As the saying goes if it is too true to be good it probably is dodgy. Listen to your inner instinct when assessing a persons ability to pay and move on. Don't be blinded by what appears to be a genuine deal. There are people without integrity in the world.
